Carolyn Bennett Fraiser

Carolyn Bennett Fraiser grew up just south of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and was fascinated with the moon. A former journalist, she loves to write about nature and hidden stories buried in history. She currently lives in Brevard, NC, where she stumbled across a local moon tree and knew it was a story that begged to be told. When she is not writing, she enjoys playing the piano or photographing one of the region's many waterfalls.

Simona Mulazzani

Simona Mulazzani was born in Milan, but now lives and works in the town of Pesaro. After art school she studied scientific illustration and began working on packaging design, TV commercials, and animation. She is an adored children’s book artist in Italy and has illustrated over 100 books internationally. In 2005 and 2013 she received a Silver Medal from the Original Art Show at the Society of Illustrators, in 2007 and 2011 the White Ravens Award, and in 2016, the Andersen Prize as Best illustrator (the most important Italian children’s book prize). Her works have been exhibited both in Italy and abroad.

Reviews

A small but extraordinary episode, well worth the belated notice.
